Rev. W. A. Peggans, pastor of the A.

on sanctification as taught by the Holy

best effort, we have ever had the pleasure
to listen to. Rev. Peggans is a young
man, of no mean ability in the pulpit, as
a pulpit orator, and logicil reasoner, he
meets the requirements. His masterly ap-
Eearance in the pulpit convinces one that
e has been trained for the work in which
he is engaged.
- We learn that the Zion Church is doing
a good work under the leaderships of this
young man.
The children of the church managed
by Mrs. Senia Chavis, hailed him with a

The Mamie A. Hood All-Star Dramatic
Company presented East Lvnne at the
Metropolitan Opera House Monday night.
This is one of the best colored troupes
traveling in the South. Miss Dora Smith,
the "star" of the company, is an emo

more lively play, one full of merriment,
as the vehicle of her acting ability. She
is full of vivacity, is refined and grace
ful. Miss Mamie Horton recited 'Cur
few." She is also a charming romantic
little actress, and would most surely make
a "hit" in a sentimental part. Thecom
medians, Messrs. Kemp P. Plummer and
John Warren, brought down the house.
These gentlemen have gained national
reputation as princes of fun.

its most faithful members. Mrs. Eliza
beth Harrison is gone. Peacefully and
calmly she passed from earth's labors to
heaven's glories on Sunday night, March

and suffering to one of peace and happi
ness. Our hearts go out in tender sympathy
with the dear ones left behind. May the
gentle spirit of our departed friend lin

with hands eternal in the heavens.

importance of education among the col
ored of North Carolina; and, wheieas,
the means and facilities for acquiring
such education as the times now de

needs ; and, whereas, believing it to be
the object of our Representatives to do
all in their power to establish and foster
such institutions as will redound to their
betterment and efficiency, laying the
foundation for broader cultivation and
higher conceptions of citizenship, and
viewing material energy and thrift as
products of intellectual culture and
training ; and, whereas, knowing that
good and lasting acquisition cannot be
had except through the channels of su

realize the fact that a State receives no
revenue from its illiterate and ignorant
citizens ; and, whereas, knowing that

important facts herein set forth, will do
all in its power, and take action at once,

The entertainment given under the
management of Rev. James Deans, Pre
siding Elder of the A. M. E. Church, was
a very creditable one, indeed. The solos
sarg by Miss Annie Malone and Mrs. Mag
gie Cook were excellent indeed. The duet
by M'-esrs. Stephen Bullock and Thomas
Alston was very catchy. They deserve
great praise. The essays by Mrs. Hettie
Bullcck, Mrs. Nester Eison and Miss
Theodosia Home were very pointed and
ii btructive all through. Miss Carrie Ar

as also Mrs. Frazier read a very nice se

Rev. Deans was organist, and he per
formed with great ease. He is an excel

home with our people; they all admire
him, especially for his refinement and
way of conducting enterprises for the
good of the race. The receipts were $40

When some of the Republican Repre
sentatives return to their constituents
down east how will they explain to them
the failure that they have made. Sup
pose they may be asked a few questions
like these :
"Mr. Representative, did you not prom
ise to offer every possible bill thas would
bring relief to Tour people?'
(Rep.): "Well, yes, so I did."
(Conat): "Well, why did you fail to
succeed to pass any of them?"
(Rep.): "Because I was too extreme.
My associates declared war against me
and I could not get a bill of any kind
(Const) : " Why did you not, after see
ing you had made war upon yourself,
seek to restore confidence and secure the
influence of those who opposed you and
still carry out your promise to your pe j
ple?" (Rep.) : " Well, I am not of that kind."
(Const): " Djjou think that such men
as you are, whom the whole people, or
ratber all of the Representatives, are op
posed to, should be returned again? Do
vou think you could ever succeed if re
turned?" (Rep.): Yes; no one else is worthy. I
am the only one fit, and if I don't go I'll
split the party."
(Const): "But the people will not have
this split business any more, from the fact
that they know,unle8syou use Democratic
money 3 ou cafi not get far on this line,
so you may get left."
(Rep): 'Ob, no; lean foci them just
as I have done heretofore."
Const): "Mr. Representative, you
promised too much to do nothing. You
should crawl under the cover and say to
your people, 'I did not mean it; oh, no,
I did rot; forgive us, please."

Chapel Hill. N. C, Feb. 23, 1897.
. Pursuant to a call by Hon. Nelson Cald
well the citizens of Chapel Hill met at the
Congregational Church to hold memorial
exercises in honor of our late friend, Prof.
L. A. Whitted, who. departed this life a
few days ago.
Rev. L. II. Hackney acted as chairman
of the meeting, and George W. Pearson
The services were opened with music
by the choir, " Thy Way, Not Mine," and
prayer by Rev. Anthony Peden, of Oaks,
N. C., after which the audience and choir
sang very toucbingly, " Come ye, Discon
solate." The chairman, Rev. Hackney,
then spoke of his very pleasant relations
with Mr. Whitted, both as students in
Shaw University and as citizens of Chapel
Hill, after which Rev. Peden was intro
duced to the audience as the first speaker
of the evening. He spoke of Mr. Whit
ted as a teacher and uplifter of his race.
Prayer was then offered by Rev. John
Caldwell. The choir agin sang, '"When
Peace Like a River." Hon. Wilson Cald
well then addressed the audience. Among
other things, he said: "We shall miss
Mr. Whitted on the streets, in the school
room, and in the homes, for. he was the
best man he had ever known."
He was followed by Prof. P. L. LaCqur,
who spoke in very high terms' of his
friend and co worker.
Ago in we were favored with music by
the choir. At this juncture those of the
audience who desired were given the
privilege to speak. Among those who re
sponded, were Messrs. Amos Anderson,
John Caldwell, J. J. Jones, E. D. Allen,
William McDade and William Flanner,
who made very timely remarks in respect
to the beloved dead.
The committee on resolutions was then
appointed, who submitted the following:
Whereas, God in His wise providence
has seen fit to remove from our midst
our friend and fellow-citizen, Prof. Lon
don A. Whitted; and whereas we, the
people of Chapel Hill, shall feel deeply
the loss of so excellent a man; be it
Resolved, That we, the people of Chapel
Hill, have lost one of its best citizens,
whose place it will be hard to fill, and
that his influence for good in this com
munity has been an inspiration to both
old and young; be it further
Resolved, That we extend to the be
reaved friends and relatives of our de
ceased friend our heartfelt praj ers and
sympathy in this hour of affliction, and
that we point them to '.hat One alone who
is able to heal all our sorrows; be it also

this purpose was appointed. Committee:

Caldwell, Jesse Kirk land, William Mc
Dade and William Flanner.
The services were ended by singing, "I
Shall be Satisfied." The music was beau
tiful and soul stirring.
The music was furnished by the three
choirs of the city, Miss Lucy Cordal pre
siding at the organ.
As the music rose upward and our
soula caught the inspiration we thought
of the boys and girls into whom he had
infused the principles of womanhood and
We thought as Ingersoll, " That if each
bright face were to pass, if each loving
hand cast a flower, he would rest tonight
beneath a wilderness of flowers." Rest on,
thou sainted dead. We, too, have joined
the innumerable caravan, and ere long
hope to draw our mantles around us and
lie down to peaceful slumber. Until
then, we say, may our lives be as bene
ficial to those by whom we are surround
ed, as unassuming as helpful, as grand
and glorious. G. W. Pearson,

the Christmas holidays for all the session
for the purpose of rebuilding the build
ings that were consumed by fire last May,
and also additional buildings. The Uni
versity is located in the village of Ober
lin, N. C , one and one-half miles west of
the capitol building in the city. The lo
cation is the very best for a school, being
out of the busy city, but within easy
reach by means of the electric streetcars.
It is enough to say, that there has not
been a single case of serious illness since
the establishment of the school. Each
dormitory is heated by stoves and hearths,
so every necessary comfort is secured.
The terms are very reasonable $7.50 per
month. Those desiring to reduce their
expenses by work will be taken at the
lowest possible rates: young men $6.40
per month ; young women $5.40 per
month; day students $1 per month.' A
small incidental fee will be charged.
The school will reopen on the 7th day
of October, 1897. Our purpose is to make
it one of the largest schools in the South
for the race. Law and Medicine will be
added. The institution is wholly non
sectarian in its religious instruction or
influence. Yet earnest attention will be
given to Bible study, applying its truths
to daily life and conduct, that a. thorough
Christian character may be obtained. It
is open to all students of either ' sex.
None but competent teachers will be em
ployed. For further information, address the
President, Rev. M. L. Latta, D. D.
I will leave for the North and Europe
the latter part of December or the first
of January, and will return time enough
to have buildings completed by the re
opening of the school. The University
will contain eight buildings.

In this grasping age when so many
people want everything (for nothing) it
is refreshing to go back to Mother Goose

Side lines and Pinhook prices do not
indicate a prosperous business. We do
not advertise Cheap Goods. We have
them in stock and sell when asked for,
but in the language of Uncle Moses
Salter, "It flings a -dampness" on us to
show them.
We would rather sell one dollars' worth
of nice stock than two dollars' worth of
poor stuff at the same rate of profit.
We rely upon the quality of our goods
to build up and keep trade. We have
the best of everything in our line, and it
is a great satisfaction to exhibit it. Our
prices are as low as such goods will afford,
and we are not afraid to compare price
lists with any house, North or South.
Our Flour, Coffee, Tea, Butter and all
food products are the finest money will
buy in any market.
